Leith artist, Elspeth J Mackenzie, shares some of the inspiration and processes behind her vibrant, joyous art.

Sskiffie Worlds 2019

New series of paintings

I am currently exploring ways to depict how it feels be coastal rowing in a St Ayles skiff. The skiff is a 22 foot wooden boat with four crew and a cox. I row in the Firth of Forth in all weathers throughout the year. The environment is ever changing and the experience of rowing varies from exhilarating and challenging to calm and peaceful.

I hope you will enjoy coming on the journey with me.

Some small exploratory studies
